Hello, my peeps! It’s Day 5 of the 2019 Cat Lovers Hop and I’ve stopped in this morning to share another card with you! If you’re a fellow cat lover, be sure to come on over and play – Janis has worked super hard getting tons of sponsors so that means there are tons of prizes to be won!

I created a sweet friendship card featuring an awfully cute little feline. OMGoodness, can you say adorable?! And that plaid bow just melts my heart, lol!


I once again dug into my Paper Smooches kitty stamps and dies for the focal image. I started out thinking clean and simple, then added a coordinating flowered panel and then a half doily, and soon it was no longer CAS, lol! I separated the two panels with a third (thin) piece of coordinating paper and some skinny Washi Tape. Then I framed the kitty on three layered stitched mini scallop circle dies, added the sentiment with black glittered alphabet letters and some YNS Gumdrops in the corners of the panel to complete the front.


I embellished the inside panel with some leftover strips of paper and cardstock, along with the Washi Tape used on the front, then stamped the sentiment in black from the same Paper Smooches stamp set.


And here’s one more look… so happy with how this turned out!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D

  1. I’m having trouble seeing the photos on your post, too, Leslie. I can see it fine on the Cat Lovers list but over here, none of the photos show up. It’s a darling card from what I can see on the list. 😀


  2. No pix again, Leslie, but I can see this cutie in the thumbnail of the Hop and enlarge it on my screen to see the fab details. Love that kitty with his cute plaid bow and the stitched layered scalloped circles. Purr-ty paper, too. xxD


  3. Thanks for your feedback, ladies! I’ve just gone in and deleted all the pics, and then re-loaded them. Hopefully it’s fixed now. Have never had an issue like this before so I’m clueless as to what happened. Thanks for your patience, too! ;)
